"My costume designer Sahil Kochhar had to design outfits according to the fabrics and colours available in that era. We made sure we didn't use any nylon outfits as it had not been invented then. Similarly, the colour pink wasn't used then. Also, we did many look tests for both Ayushmann and Mithun. We even tried out nine different hairdos before zeroing in on Ayushmann's hairstyle," said director Vibhu Puri.

Ayushmann said in a bid to depict that era, the team also had to recreate several antiques.  

"Many artefacts that we read about aren't available in this day and age. So, we used our imagination and recreated them. We even designed the plane based on how it was described in the books," he said.

Starring Ayushmann, Mithun Chakraborty and Pallavi Sharda, 'Hawaizaada' is set in the 19th century.

Presented by Reliance Entertainment and produced by Trilogic Digital Media and Film Farmers Motion Picture Company, Hawaizaada, will release on January 30.
